A single-vineyard wine from the lieu-dit ‘Les Clos du dessus’

Varietal: Chardonnay

Terroir: This east-facing vineyard is located on the highest part of the appellation.The marl-limestone soil is lightly ploughed and undergoes phytosanitary treatment that abides to organic requirement.

Vinification: The grapes are manually harvested. They are lightly crushed and pressed slowly. The musts are then allowed to settle naturally for 24 hours, then transferred to barrels for alcoholic fermentation that lasts 30 days at 15 degree celsius.

Ageing and Bottling: 12 months in oak barrels on fine lees. When the malolactic fermentation completes at the end of this ageing period, the wine is decanted in vats for a second winter. The wine is bottled in the following spring when the cellar temperature exceeds 15 degree celsius. Bottling by hand with a manual bottle filler and corking machine.

The Producer

Domaine de la Roseraie is the fruit of labour for Julien Petitjean, a former historian and musicologist who made a career switch to viticulture and winemaking at the beginning of the 2000s. The domaine was incepted in 2012, and currently comprises a 5 hectare vineyard with 2.8 hectares producing wines.

In search of the most natural wine production methods and in his endeavour to replicate the vibrance in cuvées reminiscent of pre-technological eras, he explored and applied medieval winemaking techniques, resurrecting simplicity and purity in the processes.

The principles of organic and biodynamic farming are followed, with cover cropping practised and biodiversity embraced. Vinification stays truthful to ancient techniques. Julien leaves the wines as long as it takes, sometimes years, to complete the fermentation process. Wines are bottled by hand without fining and filtration, nor addition of sulfites.

Maison Le Trèfle is a négoce label parallel to Domaine de la Roseraie, with the same viticulture approach applied to the vineyards
